The Kitchen Corner July 2014
Just walking around outside on a Summer evening you can smell the odor of charcoal and caramelized sugars burning from a neighbor’s BBQ. I love that smell. You know right away what time of year it is.
It is great to be able to cook outside even if it’s just a burger or a hot dog. The coals add such a simple but bold flavor to whatever it is you are cooking.
It is safe to assume most people like to entertain at least a couple of times around the outdoor grill. When I am grilling I like to have the items taste different and not use the same sauce on everything. A few years ago, I found this recipe for a bold barbecue sauce. It has coffee in it that gives it that little kick.
I hope you enjoy it. Have a great summer!
